About Us

Reconnecting with the Soul of Business.

Streamlining the Business so the Soul Can Flow.

Founder – Jan Vermeiren

Hi! Nice to meet you!

Since we regularly get the question what our credentials are, I gladly share my successes and failures.

I know what it takes to build something from scratch out of a passion (my previous company Networking Coach which nobody believed in at first which I started after a career in the software industry, see below), be very successful (international best sellers “Let’s Connect!” and “How to REALLY use LinkedIn” and the first training partner of LinkedIn worldwide), almost go bankrupt (with the Generous Networkers project), doubt myself and have a burn-out, getting back on my feet (with the successful sale of Networking Coach), reflect about what happened and share the insights (in the book “Life is a Game!”) and finally from a renewed connection with my passions bring something new to the world (Soul Business and The Compassionate Leader).

In other words I know what it is to (often alone) bring something to the world, with ups and downs. If we work together, you can ask me any question. I will share both my successes and failures. Because that is information you often don’t have access to.

Networking Coach

We started from scratch and worked for more than 500 organizations world wide including 3M, Adecco, Agoria, Alcatel, Bilderberg Hotels, Bosch, Bridgestone, Deloitte, DHL, ING, IBM, KBC, MCI, MKB Nederland, Movares, Nike, Philips, Rabobank, SAP, Schiphol Group, SD Worx, Siemens, Telenet, Unizo and VOKA.

I have written several books, including two international best sellers: Let’s Connect! and How to REALLY Use LinkedIn and I was a guest lecturer in the international MBA programs of  Vlerick Business School (Belgium) and Rotterdam School of Management (Netherlands).

I have been interviewed over 100 times by national and international media: television (de Zevende Dag, Lichtpunt), radio (Radio 1, Studio Brussel, Tros) and other media like Forbes, AD, Vacature, Sales Magazine, de Tijd, Jobat, het Parool and het Ingenieursblad.

Last but not least: Networking Coach was the first official LinkedIn training partner in the world.

I don’t share this to brag, but to show that I know what it is to build a company with consulting, training, coaching, publishing and speaking activities with lots of ups and downs (yes, lots of trial and error).

Now we help trainers, coaches and consultants attract larger projects and work with more top clients using our own model, the Soul Business Roadmap.
